"Rumsfeld is using psyops specialists and information warfare specialists on US journalists, and by extension, the American public."

That’s her conclusion, but see Laura Rozen’s whole post on revelations that the Pentagon has been planting stories in Iraqi newspapers, paying Iraqi journalists to write “positive” stories, and even using psychological operations specialists to help write the stories… many of which wind up in international media. The White House is “concerned” about these reports. (As Bill Cosby’s “Noah” would say, “riiiiiiight.”) And as of today, the Pentagon admits and defends the practice – says it’s a way to get the truth out.

Speaking of getting the truth out, see the Center for American Progress’s reality check on Iraq.
